OLALA C2-a Battery Pack Review

Poor battery life is something that plagues smartphones. While there are phones out there that can last a day without a hitch, it should be a standard that all phones can be used throughout the day for calls, texting, games, videos, and more without having to worry about battery life. While we wait for the technology to exist within smartphones everywhere, we need to rely on external battery packs. OLALA’s C2-a battery pack is an interesting offering. Let’s take a look.

Design

The OLALA C2-a is a sleek device. It has a nice smooth finish that is done with a “piano paint finish.” On the front there is “OLALA” printed along with four LEDs that display the battery percentage of the battery pack. On the right side there is a micro USB and regular USB slot, along with a cord that pulls out of the battery pack. This cord is a nice touch, as you don’t need to worry about carrying a cord with you when you want to use this battery pack. All in all, it’s a simple, but nicely done design.

Function

Battery packs have a handful of things they need to be good at: charging phones, and being charged, and… oh. I guess that’s it. Well, it does these two things just fine. A full charge of this pack holds about 3 charges for my first gen Moto X, which would be about what I would expect for a 6000 mAh battery. It also charges at an average speed, not very fast but not too slow. This battery pack does not have anything special about it, except its design. If you’re looking for a battery pack that just does what it’s supposed to, then this is it.

Value

The OLALA C2-a battery pack is $29.99 on Amazon, here. Here is where I am at: this is a nice looking battery pack, with a functional cord placement, that is fairly thin and light and therefore easy to carry. The actual charging is average, and nothing different from other battery packs. If design is worth the moeny, then this is not a bad deal. However, if you’re looking for something particularly unique, then you might be better off looking elsewhere.

Overall, this is a nice battery pack that will work well, and has nice design. It should serve you well were you to get this battery pack.
